Account lockout[edit]

  • I think I've caught Soup's disease- I can't get back into my old account :/ I was just fixing a few things for reviews, when suddenly I had a Refreshed screen. When I finally found the login button, my password didn't work (and I know it's the right password)... any ideas what I should do? (I'm pretty sure I didn't have an email set up) NovaFlare (test) (talk) 03:29, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
    • What you're going to have to do is make a new account that I merge your old account into. Then I rename the new account to your old name. This can be a bit glitchy and may misassociate contributions globally with a "lost" account. The other alternatives would be to use a different account (I don't know if you still have access to EGRM or NovaFlare), or to make a new account and only use that as your main (without the merge and rename). We don't know the cause of this password lockout issue yet and it's very hard to debug, but maybe by the time we resolve it, any locked out accounts may be able to be accessed again without having to change anything, therefore the latter option might be the safest. It's up to you. --ToaMeiko (talk) 04:37, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
      • It looks like I've still got access to this account, so to save me making a new account, so whenever you get the time, if you could merge this with NovaHawk and rename it back to NovaHawk, that'd be great (I don't care about editcounts or points or whatever). Thanks :) EnormousGreenRageMonster (talk) 05:18, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
        • I'll do that later tonight when I don't have any distractions. I'd rather not mess anything up. :D --ToaMeiko (talk) 17:37, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
          • Ok thanks, don't worry about it too much, there's no real hurry :) EnormousGreenRageMonster (talk) 20:58, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
          • Thanks for doing all that :) No worries about the merge with the test account, it saves me from making a name change request to make it "NovaHawk (test)" :P NovaHawk 02:38, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
            • (oh, and what's up with taking all my rights away except checkuser? :D NovaHawk 02:41, 2 January 2015 (UTC))
              • Oh, that's me unassigning your rights (or the ones I could change) because the system won't let me merge accounts that have certain groups associated with them (e.g. sysop), and then I just forgot to add them back in all the chaos I was having to deal with in the merges. --ToaMeiko (talk) 03:16, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
                • Also what are you going to want to do about the pages under EnormousGreenRageMonster's account that now no longer exists? --ToaMeiko (talk) 03:29, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
                  • Thanks for reminding me about that, moved them all over NovaHawk 03:50, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Re: mn=df/mn=md:[edit]

  • It's just a way to change "Minifigures:" to another name- md=Mini-doll figures, df=DUPLO figures, f=Figures:, and anything else to whatever you write in mn EnormousGreenRageMonster (talk) 20:58, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Oh okay. Cool! --ToaMeiko (talk) 21:14, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Re:Account merge[edit]

That's alright! :-) Sibo (talk) 08:56, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

NR Rights[edit]

It seems that I cannot make a report anymore, could I get them back anytime soon? ;-) Sibo (talk) 11:06, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Looks like CJC's done that for you. --ToaMeiko (talk) 22:05, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, he messaged me :-) Sibo (talk) 22:39, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Parts stuff[edit]

  • I found my charger :P Got those minor things fixed up for the inventories (example), now I've just got to get PartAppearances working, which is going to take some time because I don't have a clue how to do it if it's going to be done how I want it to (with quantity listed, and the appearances split up by Element/Colour ID's) NovaHawk 08:37, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Deep Sea navbar[edit]

  • Would you mind removing the LMO section from the Deep Sea navbar (link) if/when you get the time? NovaHawk 01:06, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

So I noticed[edit]

Hey, so I was going to your test instance site so I could start messing with the Refreshed 3.0 skin again and I looked in the RC, and it was flooded with spambots. I'm not sure if you care but since it's your site I think you would. Here's a link to it so you can see all of the actions - http://georgebarnick.com/refreshed-beta/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&days=30&from=&limit=500

Codyn329 (talk) 22:56, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

  • lol that's funny, no I don't really care since I'm most likely going to delete the test instance or at least dump the existing database for it as soon as development is finished. --ToaMeiko (talk) 01:52, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

Just a thank you for cleaning up those external links. I guess you've had a good break? :D BrikkyyTalk 05:27, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Spambot(s?) on meta[edit]

Pestering about review(s)[edit]

Meeeeeeikoooooo... you need to let me review the Kwik-E-Mart. Pleeeeeeeasee? :P but in all seriousness I would be really grateful if you let me review it. Also, have you gotten a text message from DHL? I have a failed delivery notice addressed to Brickipedia saying a text message was sent to a number I don't recognise. BrikkyyTalk 04:29, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

No, I haven't gotten any texts or calls from DHL. If you can forward me the details on that delivery notice that would be good. --ToaMeiko (talk) 15:02, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
If you didn't get anything it was probably someone at LEGO. All it really said was "we tried to deliver a package, please call us to organise a new delivery date," it also had my address and the number. If you need more details I can give them. BrikkyyTalk 22:13, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Email all the details to georgebarnick [at] gmail.com --ToaMeiko (talk) 23:16, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Done. If you need anything else once it's delivered just ask. BrikkyyTalk 00:12, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

RE: Chat[edit]

Damn that sucks. If nobody else reviews it expect my self-funded review of it sometime next year :P BrikkyyTalk 17:02, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Reasons[edit]

  1. It's the only set produced from the '03 clone wars series
  2. It's the Azure Angel, a fan favorite ship
  3. Its build is completely different to any other starfighter from the past
  4. An Assaj Ventress without the goofy anime eyes
  5. It won't severely dent the budget

BrikkyyTalk 18:22, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Removal of XD[edit]

Why did you remove XD as an emote? May I point out that the majority of those who use it use that shortcut instead of the others? BrikkyyTalk 02:43, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

People who are using "xD" don't want the emote to display in those cases typically, and generally when people want to use that emote they do (XD) -- this is how I originally had intended the usage to be anyways. --ToaMeiko (talk) 02:47, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Manual labour[edit]

You want something done on a bot? UltrasonicNXT (talk)

Nah it's good. Thanks for the offer! --ToaMeiko (talk) 02:28, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Re:Chat[edit]

That would be because I haven't changed anything yet :P Can I get any JS console errors/info? UltrasonicNXT (talk)

Re: Comments on Brickipedia:Pick the Hero contest[edit]

  • Mine, to free up some space for people to make comments. I'll be posting the results on the page itself from now on so it doesn't take up space in the comments too NovaHawk 00:20, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
  • ru srs? :P NovaHawk 03:14, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
    • Underscores are terrible. --ToaMeiko (talk) 03:51, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
      • But... you can't even see the difference- spaces get turned into underscores when you rollover the link anyway :D NovaHawk 08:11, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

UA villains[edit]

  • [2] - source? There's been no mention of the names on the EB UA thread, and if you do a google search there are no hits for the names in relation to Ultra Agents either NovaHawk 04:15, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

CreateBlogPost[edit]

  • So I've taken a look at SpecialCreateBlogPost.php and made a couple of small changes to it which I think will fix the two problems we've been having (bad cats and no username in title). What do I do with it? :P NovaHawk 01:48, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Just acknowledging that I've seen this and will write a proper response if I can find a way to instruct you or find someone who would be able to do so better than me. Because it's an extension we get from Wikimedia Gerrit, it's not as simple as submitting LocalSettings changes and whatnot. --ToaMeiko (talk) 03:35, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
@NovaHawk: That's great to hear! Like basically all other social tools, BlogPage is hosted on Wikimedia's git server and thus patches to it need to go through gerrit, and as such, submitting a patch is somewhat more complicated than on GitHub and whatnot, but it is by no means impossible since I've managed to "master" it well enough.
First off, you need a Wikitech/Labs account (see mw:Developer access). Once you have that and you're in the shell user group on Wikitech, you should be able to log in to gerrit (and also bastion, but since we're not interested in Labs right now, let's skip over that). I'm actually not sure how this works right now, so if you're having any issues with this, come poke me (preferably on IRC) and we'll get it sorted out somehow. For the sake of simplicity and all, let's assume your Wikitech/Labs username is NovaHawk, and its lowercase equivalent is used in the URLs below (this is your "Instance shell account name", also visible on Special:Preferences on Wikitech).
You'll need to add your public SSH key on Wikitech. Once that's done, you should be able to sign in to gerrit, though you might also need to add your public SSH key there, too (should that be necessary, it can be found under (your username in the right corner) → Settings → SSH Public Keys).
I don't know what kind of a setup you're using; I'm using PortableGit (git command-line binary + some related, necessary utilities) under Windows 7, but the instructions should apply mostly as-is, no matter what your setup looks like. Now, let's check out a copy of the BlogPage extension: ssh://novahawk@gerrit.wikimedia.org:29418/mediawiki/extensions/BlogPage.git ...but wait, that's not all! Before you can start modifying the code you just checked out, we need to make a few changes to some meta files in the .git subdirectory. Open up BlogPage/.git/config in your favorite non-Microsoft Notepad text editor and add the following lines into it and then save the file:
	[remote "gerrit"]
	url = ssh://novahawk@gerrit.wikimedia.org:29418/mediawiki/extensions/BlogPage.git
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/gerrit/*
Then save this paste as BlogPage/.git/hooks/commit-msg and once that's done, you can proceed to make your changes, commit them (git commit -a, for example) as usual and submit to upstream (i.e. push to gerrit) with git push gerrit HEAD:refs/for/master; now there should be a changeset on gerrit, which people can review and comment on.
9 out of 10 people would probably agree that my way of doing this is likely unnecessarily complex, but hey, it works and I'm lazy. ;-) If you get stuck, just let me know and I'm sure we can solve the problem, no matter what it is! --Jack Phoenix (talk) 13:47, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Polish LEGO Wiki[edit]

The Polish LEGO wiki has a banner that links to the English Brickia. Out of curiosity, have you ever contacted them about Brickimedia? Is it worthwhile? BrickfilmNut (talk) 18:57, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

  • It's not really easy for me to communicate with Wikia communities. --ToaMeiko (talk) 03:48, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Chat Ban[edit]

Before I make an appeal, can you explain to me why I have been blocked and how long it will be for? Thanks. --Knight

Also, after reading chat logs, jsyk. I do not have intentions of disrupting the chat or creating a sockpuppet. I am not saying this to get unbanned, I am just saying this so no false misconceptions are made. I will also not make a ban appeal if your reasons seem reasonable enough. --Knight

You've been blocked from chat for ongoing disrespect to several users, myself included, in the community chat. I've heard several complaints about your behavior from other users, and I've encountered it myself several times from you lately, and frankly I (and some other community members) am tired of it. I haven't determined an expiry for your block yet. Perhaps if you can show that you can positively take part in the community without being disrespectful or making users feel uncomfortable, it won't be a long chat ban. Cheers. --ToaMeiko (talk) 22:25, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Okay. Seems reasonable enough. --Knight
...do you have any ways for me to, in your words, "positively take part in the community" that I can think about? It'd probably help. --Knight
Be helpful for a few days. BP:Things to do may give you some ideas for constructive activity. --ToaMeiko (talk) 22:31, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorta slipped my mind. No, I'm not trying to get unbanned by saying this and I do not wish this to get me unbanned. But I'd just like to say sorry for making fun of you. I thought it was funny for poking little jokes about your love of cars every so often. I'm sorry for getting you highly upset all these times... Our relationship has been, erm, rocky, to say the least. I really hope I can make it up sometime. I don't want you hating me. --Knight

One day should be enough for now. You're unbanned, but do be more aware of what you say in chat and its appropriateness. This ban was a long time coming and we've been very easy-going about your behavior for a long time, but don't continue to push any limits. --ToaMeiko (talk) 23:54, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks for being easy on me. --Knight

Colours for DeepSea theme[edit]

Same problem as last time, and I still can't fix it because I'm not an admin. :P Special:WikiForum on DeepSea. (See picture and please delete it once you've changed it). --Jag 08:20, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Clone slamming my customs[edit]

Sure. I just don't want it to happen again. I sent a message to his talk page. I don't want to make an enemy of him.Thanks - Captainjackster(talk) on Tuesday September 1st, 2015.

Using the "Show Preview" button[edit]

I remember you told me that before. Sorry, I think I just kind of forgot. Thanks, and will do. - Captainjackster at 7:56 AM, Thursday, September 3rd, 2015.

Using "Show Preview"[edit]

I am sorry that I haven't been using the show preview option. I also wanted you to know that I am using it and that all the recent edits to my user page have been making some custom user boxes for myself. Thank you for your time. - Captainjackster (talk) on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

I also apologize for that last edit on my user page. I put a summary but it didn't show up. The summary was that I created a custom user box and added a customs category. It meshed my previous edits with out the show changes button with the newest ones where I did use it. Had I not used show preview on my newest edit of adding a contributions section, there would be many more edits to patrol then there are. I hope you'll forgive this error and I have been using show preview. Thank you for your time. - Captainjackster (talk) on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

Files not showing up on my user page[edit]

The recently large number of edits on my user page is also due to the fact that I have or am created files that WILL NOT show up on my user page. no matter what I do. Thanks for your time. - Captainjackster (talk) on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

@Captainjackster: Do the file names that you are adding match those at you upload to Meta? --ToaMeiko (talk) 20:49, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes. - Captainjackster (talk) on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

@Captainjackster: Should be fixed now. --ToaMeiko (talk) 20:55, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Yeah,thanks. - Captainjackster (talk) on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

Review of 75105[edit]

Just thought I should let you know that DHL just dropped off the package. I'm busy today, but I'll definitely try to post the review tomorrow. Thanks for sending it out to me! BrikkyyTalk 22:43, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

LEGO Dimensions Request[edit]

I think I (along with the help of my friends, who keep begging to do another review) would like to start a video playthrough of LEGO Dimensions when it comes out. We have access to a Wii U with a capture card, and we could plan out consistent videos and the like, starting with the core game, and later branch into the expansion pack sets and stuff. Sound like a good idea? ~Storm

Forwarded your request to the admin wiki to be voted on. --ToaMeiko (talk) 20:16, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Review of 76044, 76045, and 76046. (BvS Wave)[edit]

I would love to review this line of sets as I've been anticipating this movie since it was announced. I'm the best person to be reviewing these with my background being so comic book dominant. I could give a fresh review for each set and give some nice insight. I'm also doing this in advance of the sets so really, this is the best pitch. So we could review something on time too.

Thanks, -Payton

RE: Reverted edits[edit]

Sorry about that. To me that seemed like a review posted in the article and I saw it as borderline spam. I'll remember for future. BrikkyyTalk 00:10, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Cat removal[edit]

  • Hey Meiko, how are you finding those sets that need to have categories removed (or are you just going through older themes since they probably haven't been taken care of)? NovaHawk 08:08, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
    • @NovaHawk: Random page over and over again lol. and with the case of all that Galidor stuff, I found one page through random page and then decided to go do that whole category (Category:Galidor). --ToaMeiko (talk) 08:19, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Re: LOTR cats[edit]

  • Should be with the lowercase "the"- good job spotting that, weird that I never came across it. I've deleted the bad cat, I'll probably go through removing pages from it sometime unless you beat me to it :) NovaHawk 04:41, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Something you've probably seen[edit]

Brickset posted this link [4]. I know you go to Brickfair in that area annually, is this something you'd be interested in? BrikkyyTalk 22:37, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

@Brikkyy13: Yup, I've joined. :) Thanks though! --ToaMeiko (talk) 23:10, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Review of 76045[edit]

I would again like to request the review of a BvS set, I think I know quite a bit about reviewing now and would love a shot at doing this. Sorry to be a hassle. I'm very confident I can get this review done in time so we can have a review on time/a bit early for once. --Nexus (talk) 02:46, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Five edits award[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to know how one would obtain the five edits award. I have made way more than five edits before, and even today actually, and just would like to know what I could do to get it. Thank you for your time. Captainjackster (talk) 21:31, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Just a reminder,[edit]

Refreshed bug[edit]

  • Hey Meiko, I don't know if you've got some sort of GitHub watchlist and already know about this, but this is a pretty serious issue- I was just wondering if you'd mind getting any relevant people to take a look at it? Thanks, NovaHawk 11:05, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
